Once again, our committee is excited to recognize First Families whose ancestors were among the earliest to come to OregonJerusalem Townships.  The recognition will be at the public meeting at Brandville Museum Complex on Grasser Street at 7 p.m.
The presentation includes displays of family photos, memorabilia and short talks by family members with an anecdotal story or two.  We hope you can attend and share in the history of our community.  Perhaps you’ve been thinking about your    eligibility to become a part of this group, so here is your opportunity to meet fellow      members and ask questions about membership.  There will be light refreshments and a cake to celebrate.   Please join us. 
                                              HAUNTED MUSEUM

The date for the tour has been updated to November 17th, with tours beginning at 4:30 and ending at 8:30.
As you journey through the   museum complex’s buildings by lantern light, mysterious visitors will appear in the shadows to share their experiences of ghostly encounters from the “other side.”
Reservations a must, with $10. for non-members, $8. for members and $5. for students.  
Call Betty Metz at 419-346-8979 to reserve your tour time. (space is limited)   


For an afternoon of holiday fun, the historical society will be hosting a Children’s Christmas Party on December 15th, from 10 am to 1 pm.  There will be caroling and make it take it crafts for children from first through 5th grades.  A light lunch of hotdogs and snacks will be  available for $2. and kids eat free!  St. Nicholas will be there for picture taking with him and Baylee, our dapple gray horse will be pulling the sleigh.  We hope to see you there.
